Property description

From Sandpiper, with its 17 live oak trees, it's only a 100 yard stroll over the dunes to the beach. Jekyll's beach is frequently quiet and uncrowded. See pelicans, sandpipers, and other shorebirds, catch a glimpse of a passing dolphin, or search tidal pools for shells. Further north along the shore, Driftwood Beach is dotted with hauntingly beautiful live oaks and pines that the Atlantic has eroded and toppled onto their sides. Grab a sand bucket, noodle, or beach chairs from the house to take with you. There's an outside shower if you want to rinse off when you return.

Sandpiper is a split level home with six bedrooms and can comfortably sleep 13 people with its 2 king, 1 queen, 2 double, and 3 twin beds. A futon in one of the common rooms can accommodate two more people. Converse, play games, or watch cable TV in either of the two common rooms. Our 65 inch television is great for sports, movies and shows which you can view in High Definition. The upper common room has a vaulted ceiling, slate floors and an adjoining balcony. Sit and relax, read, or listen to the ocean on the balcony or eat on the screened-in porch.

If you like to bike, you can enjoy a ride using one of seven bikes found in the garage. One of Jekyll's miles of bike paths is just down the street. See stately live oaks, draped with Spanish moss, pedal along the beach, or ride through a marsh. Some other popular recreational opportunities include three 18-hole golf courses, miniature golf, walking, swimming, horseback riding, a tennis center, a water park, boating, fishing and crabbing.

The Historic District, with its shopping and restored homes of the tycoons that founded the Jekyll Island Club, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, and Tidelands Nature Center provide some less physically challenging entertainment.

Sandpiper amenities include a full, updated kitchen with granite counter tops, linens, wireless internet, local phone service, 3 cable TV's, and DVD.




“So where shall we go this year? 

"I am always interested in out of the way places of natural beach beauty, so I sniffed around till I found Jekyll Island, a historic winter vacation of the wealthy some decades ago.  Warm, hauntingly beautiful, friendly, it held promise. Some weeks later, we decided to enjoy a large nearly beach front home with fireplace and very old trees.  The house is not quite ocean front, and so is easily beach accessible at sunrise and sunset, visual highlights of our time away.

A brand new island to explore is always delicious for me. In pleasurable anticipation, I decided which camera to take to capture daybreak at the beach and scouted a bike to use to enable long hours on exquisite flat ocean trails.

As we found the driveway, the huge umbrella-shaped [oak] trees hung heavy with grey-green lacy Spanish moss, bidding us a warm welcome in the darkness of the evening. Walking into a generous back yard, the omnipresent Spanish moss created a space both awe-inspiring and quietly unobtrusive. I was glad to be there. The gentle ambience of this very quiet neighborhood provided a soothing contrast to our quicker paced urban life.

First morning there, just before daylight, I threw on beach clothes, made tea, and strapped a leash the younger live wire of our Mother-daughter team of dogs. We set off for the beach just before sunrise.  In the daylight, the arch of the [oak] trees hung heavy with Spanish moss as they had in the darkness, enveloping me in a comforting tent of feathery leaves framing the sun as it rose over the beach directly ahead of me. The empty beach appeared before us, awash in silvery gold of the pre sunrise sky. From our rocky promontory, we walked slowly down the beach steps. [Our dog] trembled from the thrill generated by the smell of driftwood, boulders, ocean and sandpipers worthy of chasing.

Returning home. My cell phone app informed me I had done nearly 7000 steps, and I had enjoyed each and every one.  My dogs were exercised and stimulated by their new surroundings as my husband, with a bum ankle, waited at home and read in the company of stately trees on our back balcony. "
